Careers in STEM


Anaesthetists are the largest group of specialist doctors in hospitals and provide wide-ranging support to patients who are undergoing surgical, medical or psychiatric procedures. As an anaesthetist, you will assess patients' health and discuss which type of anaesthetic is suitable for them, administer appropriate anaesthetics before surgery, monitor their wellbeing during surgery and provide care after medical procedures, and also deal with emergencies in theatre.

You will treat a wide range of conditions using the appropriate form of anaesthetic including general, regional or local. Patients can include all ages from babies to children and adults, pregnant women, the elderly and those undergoing operations.
